Communicating Across the Divide

Greetings Friends,

I want you to know about this very important online class I am offering.

Do you feel challenged at times communicating with colleagues, friends, or family in a world that seems ever more polarized? Do you wish you could cut through the differences that seem to divide us and have meaningful communication with those of differing perspectives? Would you like to be a powerful force for bridging the gaps that separate us?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this class, which starts next week, could be perfect for you.

Here is some more information…

Some would say our country and world are very divided today, but does that mean we can’t talk to each other?

How does a vegan talk to a non-vegan?

How does a Democrat relate to a Republican?

How does a spiritual person have meaningful dialog with a religious person?

How do we engage with our family and friends who see the world differently than we do?

Yes, these divides exist, but do they need to keep us separate, or are there ways to begin hearing each other? What if each perspective is part of the wholeness that can bond us to expand possibilities for all? What if there is a way to powerfully communicate your truth while also compassionately listening to those across the divide?


About Rev. Gregory Toole

Gregory Toole is Spiritual Director of Somseva whose mission is to inspire authentic, compassionate relationships through spiritual education, tools, and practice that promote peacemaking and conscious action. ForLinkedIn_WarnkeGregoryToole20140509-IMG_6270

He was formerly Director of Member Support and Education for Centers for Spiritual Living where he played an integral part in reuniting two organizations that had split more than 50 years prior. Gregory was assigned the task of finding a way to bridge major differences in educational philosophy between the two separate organizations. Those differences were said to be the one factor that might render the reunification impossible.

After bringing the parties together regularly over a period of many months, Gregory was able to get them to begin looking at their values and to detach from specific ways of doing things, instead focusing on how they might find new ways of doing things that honored the values of each organization. The effort was a success and today Centers for Spiritual Living is in the rare position of having reunited its denomination after more than 50 years of separation.

Gregory has worked with many individuals to have similar breakthroughs in how they relate to friends, colleagues, family, and those in their life that they find difficult. He has found that, while relating to others can be challenging, there are tools and practices to support us. His passion is sharing those tools and practices.
